15 June 2020 I learned of Ally's passing last week. I was Ally's keyboard Player from 1987 - 1989 until I emigrated to Australia. I can honestly say that it was the best 2 years of my musical semi-pro life. He was brilliant to work with and had a fantastic sense of humour. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. He was a great character and he will be sadly missed by Aberdeen music fan everywhere. My condolences, Ian Scorgie, Perth, Australia.
